Stable Oreo update is now rolling out to the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6

After announcing the Oreo beta program for the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 last month, HMD Global is now delivering the stable Oreo build to both devices. HMD's Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas announced on Twitter that the OTA update is now rolling out to both the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.

Customers that are currently in the beta program will also receive the stable OTA. The update weighs in at 1.8GB, and includes picture-in-picture mode, systemwide autofill, notification dots, faster boot up times, Play Protect branding, and the January 1, 2018 security patch.

HMD has raised the bar for other manufacturers when it comes to updates, with the company making good on its word to deliver the Oreo update to its entire portfolio of devices. The entry-level Nokia 3 is yet to make the switch, but the company has announced that an update is "around the corner."

As always, the rollout will be delivered in phases, so if you don't see the OTA update on your Nokia 5 or Nokia 6 just yet, hold tight. It should be hitting either device in the coming days.

  • I've the beta version but I'm loving it. waiting for the stable one though. bless u Nokia unlike other OEMs who take years to flight updates.
  • That's nice, waiting Oreo 8.1 on my Nokia 8.
  • At last, HMD's first ever Android phone getting Oreo as promised. Can't wait but will be patient. Will share my thoughts once that happens.
  • Nokia 6 OREO Update (Bug) - I have got Oreo update today for my Nokia 6 (India) but not able to make calls after oreo update because Volte option disappear in the Oreo update. Now I am not able to make a call since JIO network supports only Volte. Really a strange issue in Oreo update. NOKIA (HMD), please fix this issue and provide an update.

  • BUG
    Oreo, Nokia5, UK, 3Network,
    Loosing wifi signal(need restart), the charging doesn't start until you push the power button.
  • After the system update about a couple of weeks ago to Android 8.0.0, the sound ringtone notification for my Nokia 5 apps (WhatsApp, Twitter, etc.) have been set to the default ringtone setting. I tried to reset each app ringtone to the one set before the update but it kept setting to the system default notification. Now the default ringtone notification is all the same for all those apps. So, I can't differentiate which apps notification is that. Please fix this issue otherwise I have no problems with the overall update. Thanks.
  • Just upgraded 2 days ago. It looks freaking awesome. However, when I run some of the games I play the performance has reduced significantly to the point where the game is no longer playable. Seems like the System UI crashes the app.
